Ex-eagles captain Joseph Yobo was full of praise for Kenneth Omeruo for his performance against the Syli Nationale of Guinea when he was on punditry duties at SuperSport yesterday.
Ex-eagles captain played alongside Kenneth Omeruo at 2013 edition of Afcon at South Africa which Super Eagles won. Yobo said “It was a well-taken goal by Kenneth Omeruo and as far as I know, the Chelsea star who was on loan at Leganes last season was imperious all through 90 minutes against Guinea”.
“I like the way they played against Guinea. In the first half, the game was evenly balanced but in the second period, they showed a bit more of their character by pressing the Guineans.”
He further stated that “I am happy for Omeruo because he played along with me. I am happy that he is fulfilling his potential because he is a good defender.”
